Romford manager Paul Martin admitted his side weren’t good enough against Maldon & Tiptree last night as they were beaten 2-0 in the Ryman North.

Alex Anderson opened the scoring for the Jammers at Ship Lane seven minutes before half time and Dagenham & Redbridge youngster Mason Bloomfield sealed the points for the visitors by smashing home in the 81st minute.

The result keeps Boro in the bottom three on goal difference and extends their winless run to six league matches.

Martin said: “It was not good enough. We played alright in the second half and did the best we could.

“We made an error and that has cost us for the first goal and we are pushing to equalise and they hit us on the counter to score the second.

“We are creating chances, but we just haven’t taken them. They have had three shots on target and scored twice and we have four or five, but can’t make the most of them.”

Martin praised away keeper Darren Behcet for pulling off a stunning save from Abs Seymour in the second half at Ship Lane.

He also admitted opposite manager Alan Kimble has done a great job since taking over at the Jammers.

“Their keeper has kept them in the game and he pulled off an unbelievable save from Abs,” added Martin.

“I have known Alan for a while and he has got good contacts and speaks with Dagenham & Redbridge and he has done a good job there.

“All you can do is pick yourself up, stick your chest out and keep going.”
